I just put this book down and I slightly freaking out over the fact that the second one isn't available yet. Dang it. Great book, crazy cliff-hanger. The trilogy seems it will be one long story in three books.
The characters are awesome, the town is a character itself, there is mention of the first YA trilogy and the Cabals from Women of the Underworld series. I love that they all tie in. Great beginning, I was completely committed by the end of Chapter one.
